Does this file (SSDOCK16.OCX) exist on the disk?

If so, exactly what is the command you are using to register it?

Explanation of Regsvr32 Usage and Error Messages (Q249873)
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=249873

Runtime error reported isn't a common one for regsvr32, sounds more
like Visual Basic (VB) file missing perhaps? You could use dependency
walker on the .ocx to see what it's dependencies are. This would be
the same program as the depends program mentioned in the above article
too.

If you copied the file to that location, then why were you trying other
locations?

Exactly what is the message you get when you try to register it?

If the registration appears to succeed but the program won't recognise that
the OCX is installed then the wrong file is being registered. Perhaps you
are registering the unlicensed version and the program requires the licensed
version, or perhaps the program requires a different version number than the
one you are registering.

How have you confirmed that the OCX file you copied to that folder is the
correct one for that program?

I tried different locations since that software it's really old and should
be made for windows 3.1 i don't know which folder i could try to put that
file, anyway it's the only one i found and it's the one of sheringam company
(i don't think there are more than one version) Anyway if you wanna have a
better look i can send you the whole zip with all i have left of that
software (it was on an old computer that had hard disk crash) I really need
that software for my work since my work tables are made for that software..
Anyway the error i get it's always the usual "
runtime error 376 cannot load or register ssdock16.ocx"

For the rest i don't know what else to do.. i don't have such an old
operating system like windows 3.1 i was able to test it only on win98 and
the result is that above

If the OCX is being registered correctly in RegSvr32 then the location you
are putting it in is fine.

If it is not recognised as registered when you run the program then it is
not the correct version of the OCX. If you sourced this version from
somewhere other than the original program installation file set then it's
probably a freeware or unlicensed version, while the program is requiring
the licensed version. The unlicensed version is available free to people who
write their own software. The licensed version must be used with commercial
software. The two versions are not interchangeable. At least that's how
Sheridan used to do it, and I suspect it's their OCX.

I don't believe there is any solution other than to find the original,
complete, set of installation files for that application.
